Can Someone Please Explain To Me The Real Value of Mobile Containerization?

Can Someone Please Explain To Me The Real Value of Mobile Containerization? Good G*d.  It’s been ages since I have written anything here.  Candidly, my professional and personal lives have been chaotic and are only going to get more so.  Oh well…this is what most people call good problems.  In any case, let me cut to the chase.  I want to talk today about mobile containerization.  While [...]

Finally! A Valid Reason To Consider Containerization

Finally! A Valid Reason To Consider Containerization So the “Where In The World is Philippe Winthrop?” game has taken a very brief pause.  I’ve been home a whopping – wait for it – SIX days!  During that time, I have had the opportunity to watch some amazing Boston sports wins.  Literally, as we speak, I am watching the Boston Red Sox play [...]

Is Enterprise Mobility Core or Strategic to Your Business?

Is Enterprise Mobility Core or Strategic to Your Business? Sounds like a pretty simple question, no?  For many years now, I have been on my soap box telling anyone who would listen two things.  First, that you need to have an holistic mobility strategy – not just a MDM strategy – not just a BYOD strategy – but a vision of how mobile technologies [...]

Could Analytics Be a Threat To Enterprise Mobility?

Could Analytics Be a Threat To Enterprise Mobility? I just came back from a speaking engagement in California.  The main theme of the event was the empowerment of the workplace via mobile applications.  Needless to say, I was pretty excited about the topic. See, for all the talk about BYOD and enterprise mobility management, the “cool” part of enterprise mobility is when you [...]

The Mistrust In Enterprise Mobility

The Mistrust In Enterprise Mobility Hello.  Remember me?  I’m the crazy enterprise mobility enthusiast who used to have the time to write semi-witty (and hopefully semi-intelligent) missives on this site.  And then life kind of went haywire for me over the last 30 days.  In any case, I’m back (I hope).  In one respect, I look at this unintentional hiatus [...]

To Containerize or Not Containerize? That Is The Enterprise Mobility Question!

To Containerize or Not Containerize?  That Is The Enterprise Mobility Question! Admittedly, unless you’re a wannabe Thespian, that was a pretty horrible title for a missive.  That said, I do feel as if it does a pretty good job of summarizing what seems to be the next great Topic du Jour – or at the very least, the latest idea to battle the “Voldemort of Enterprise [...]

Selecting The Right Mobile App

Selecting The Right Mobile App One of the largest problems enterprises have when starting to develop enterprise mobile apps is trying to find out what to invest in or accomplish first. All of the following factors play a role in picking the right apps: alignment to company mission, alignment to mobility strategy, security, enabling new customer or sales processes, productivity [...]

Getting Past the Semantics!

Getting Past the Semantics! In the motivational spirit of the recent election, I thought it would be fun to put an end to the debate around what does “mobile” mean. With Mobility projects, it seems like many of the roadblocks an enterprise incurs in getting projects moved forward has to deal with semantics. You can spend countless hours or [...]

The Beginning of The End of BYOD?

The Beginning of The End of BYOD? You know, there are two things that I keep on telling the world…both on a personal and professional front.  The first is that whether you like it or not, the pendulum will swing back.  The second thing I tell people is that whether you like it or not, you should at the very least listen [...]

Understanding What Is and Isn’t An Enterprise Mobility Strategy

Understanding What Is and Isn’t An Enterprise Mobility Strategy It’s a rainy day here in Boston as we get ready to celebrate America’s independence today.  I was talking to a friend yesterday about enterprise mobility (I know….shocking) and he touched upon mobile strategy.  That got me thinking about what strategy means…it’s a word that gets (mis)used so frequently, that I sometimes think we don’t [...]
